Decks with Pergolas

Pergolas, arbors, and trellises are airy archways on decks and in gardens that frame sitting areas or walkways. Each affordable structure enhances your outdoor living experience.

During the past two decades, outdoor living has become a permanent part of the American lifestyle and many long for an oasis of their own.

In fact, more than 51% of consumers cite beautiful pergolas as their top requested outdoor room element. No wonder. Traditional and formal pergolas may increase a home’s value by 20 percent.

Financial benefits aside, imagine the sophisticated Amish craftsmanship of vertical pillars supporting sturdy cross rafters. Look up to see the open lattice top. Notice and smell how climbing plants like damask roses, sweet honeysuckles, and sensational clematis, have a space to flourish.

Build this structure and:

  • Add lights and fans along a promenade for a breezy, well-lit stroll. 
  • Define the perfect space for your hot tub beneath a gabled structure.
  • Hang planters or all-weather fabric on traditional rafters for a romantic appeal.
  • Place a wrought iron bistro set beneath an arched pergola for a dining area.
  • Train woody plants like wisteria and ivy to climb along a pitched pergola.

Pergolas blur the lines between inside and out to encourage people to flow through the property. These oft free-standing design elements provide shade, are low maintenance, and remain durable season after season.
